A farmers market operates in the refined and happy precinct of the collingwood childrens farm, below the abbotsford convent.
The market is on every second saturday of the month, and entry is a gold coin, which goes toward the collingwood childrens farm, which provides a space in the city where children of melbourne can experience farmyard animals up close and personal.
more details can be found on the website
and to find out more about the childrens farm, check out their website.
Fairfield has it’s own farmers market, which is held at the Fairfield primary school on Wingrove street 3rd Saturday of each month, and fifth Saturday when the month permits!
Entry is by a gold coin donation. I picked up some delicious wild pine mushrooms last time i went, and they made a really delicious vegetarian pizza!
As dangerous and suspicious as they look, they are quite amazing in taste- one of the best mushrooms I have ever tried!
